Professional statement

I am Doris, a board-certified Psychiatric and Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. I am a well-versed APRN with honed skills from years of mentoring by two of Chicagoland's most sought-after child psychiatrists and practical experience gathered at the acute, residential, and outpatient levels of care over more than 12 years. I have experience working with individuals ages 5 to 65+ with depression, mood, and anxiety disorders, ADHD, ASD, behavior disorders, eating disorders, traumas, and more.

Relying on the patient-centered model in my evaluation and treatment approach, I am committed to providing holistic and culturally competent individualized care that embodies the client’s developmental and bio-psycho-social histories in my treatment approach.

Given the complex and often intangible aspects of mental health conditions, I find that the patient's participation is crucial for effective treatment outcomes. Therefore, I view treatment planning as a collaborative effort, encouraging the client to actively engage in their care. This approach not only empowers them but also fosters a belief in their own ability to heal and regain their well-being.

Message to clients

I have worked across different settings (inpatient hospitals, residential, and outpatient settings), tackling various mental health challenges, from depressive disorders to anxiety disorders, neurodevelopmental disorders (ADHD, Autism, conduct disorders, etc), eating disorders, OCD, PTSD, Bipolar, mood and psychotic disorders, and substance use disorders.

I understand that feeling unheard during care is a common concern and I can empathize. Be rest assured, I am committed to listening attentively and providing compassionate care that aligns with your values. Each session starts by thoroughly understanding the factors affecting your mental health to tailor the treatment approach effectively.

You can trust me to be the dedicated provider you’ve been seeking. If you’re ready to engage in your recovery, I’m here to persistently seek solutions with you, ensuring your voice is integral to your care.
